Chief Apostle Raymond Grant and Apostle Rosemary Grant are the Pastors of Keep Up the Faith Don’t  Give Up the Hope Five Fold Internationally Ministry in Baton Rouge, LA – a Christian ministry under the covering of Chief Prelate Apostle Talisa Thomas-Hall and FREE SPIRIT Restoration Ministries. After careful examination, both, Chief Apostle Raymond and Apostle Rosemary Grant were ordained and 

consecrated as apostles and ordained as elders and pastors under FREE SPIRIT Restoration Ministries  on October 31, 2010.

Born on November 6, 1963 in New Orleans, LA, Chief Apostle Raymond Grant received Christ as his  savior and Lord in February 1990. He was baptized in Jesus Name as a child at age five but was rebaptized when he rededicated his life to Christ at age 28 by Pastor Frank Bailey of Victory Outreach Church in Metairie, LA. Chief Apostle Grant testifies of his life in the streets and using his path to recovery and restoration to minister to those bound by addictions and the impact upon one’s life. Through participating in the Broadview Mission rehabilitation program for drug abuse in 1999, he was delivered and set free from all bondage including drugs, alcohol and homelessness. His own path to Christianity and living a Christ-centered life has imbedded him with compassion to help the recovering, homeless, and those in transition or re-entering society from the judicial system. In February 13, 2003, Chief Apostle Raymond was licensed as a Minister of God at Household of Faith Family Worship Church.

Apostle Rosemary Grant was born on October 22, 1972 in New Orleans, LA. Apostle Rosemary was  raised in the church and received Christ at the early age of six years old and was baptized in Jesus’ name in 1998 by the presiding pastor of Apostolic Outreach Church in New Orleans, LA. Through 1997 – 1999 she was an official Students with a Mission (SWAM) at Southern University in New Orleans. She later completed discipleship and evangelism through Apostolic Outreach Church.

The Apostles sealed their relationship in holy matrimony on March 5, 2000 at Household of Family  Worship Church. In this ministry, they began their Christian walk together through supporting the ministry’s Drug Prevention Programs, serving on the 24-hour ministry support program, and through general service to the house of God. On October 25, 2003, the Apostles launched the vision for Keep Up the Faith Don’t Give Up the Hope Five Fold Internationally Ministry – first with an online ministry and later establishing the ministry in Baton Rouge in 2006. As survivors of Hurricane Katrina, they have truly learned how to continue in faith and not waiver in hope. Together they have raised a family and a ministry against catastrophic odds with the grace of God.

The Grants’ vision for the ministry is to help train and teach others how to be effective Leaders of God— to help the people of God with economic challenges through providing social support and life skills. Chief Apostle Raymond Grant has been in ministry for almost 20 years and Apostle Rosemary Grant has been in ministry for almost 10 years. Their ministry also provides support to the community through programs such as the Baton Rouge City Court for Work Volunteer Program, Capital Middle School PTA (board committee members), and Neighborhood Watch.

Keep Up the Faith Don’t Give up the Hope Five Fold Internationally Ministry continues to grow under the  direction of Chief Apostle Raymond Grant as President/Pastor and Apostle Rosemary Grant as Secretary/Co-pastor. Together they also support other local ministries including The Powerful Word of God Ministry and Family of Faith of Healing Ministry (Deacon Shawn and Evangelist Angela Weir.) The ministry continues its online outreach and has recently launched a Wednesday evening Christian Discipleship Class. As ordained clergy under Chief Prelate Apostle Talisa Thomas-Hall’s FREE SPIRIT Restoration Ministries, the Grants continue to grow in the Spirit and are looking forward to becoming an 

integral part of an international network of ministries.
